Mediasport is a comprehensive introduction, written by leading experts from around the world in the field of sports studies, sports journalism and leisure studies to the ways in which sport and the media interact. Among the subjects covered are; sports ethics sport and gender sport and violence on television the globalization of sports marketing sports on the internet. Clearly written and wide-ranging, Mediasport will provide students in sports studies, leisure and communications with an essential source of the latest thinking from around the world on the relationship between global sport and the world of communication.
